Old school NBA players do not really like how LeBron James has handled his business. They also don’t really like the lockout. Or the long shorts. All those young players today need to GET OFF MY LAWN!
Magic Johnson was out doing the inspirational speaking thing the other day in Albany, New York (remember your state capitals game), when a few digs he took at LeBron got caught on camera (via Eye on Basketball). Ones like:
“There will always be great players in basketball. There’s always going to be guys who win championships in the NBA. Except LeBron.”
Don’t be mad, he’s just playing. “I love the young man though. I know he’s going to get better this year in the fourth quarter.”
Sounds to me like it’s in good fun. But Magic just made LeBrons book of enemies.
